    Rest in Paradise Coleman.... I knew him and his family, it wasn't anyone's fault, A cornice collapsed and they went with it, something that could happen to anyone... @ Patriot, Here in heber we are in fact aloud to drive snowmobiles at 14, that doesn't mean that our parents are irresponsible or anything... Colemans parents are wonderful people and they would never have put their children in danger if they knew there was any.

    It was not careless of the parents or the children and my heart breaks for them. It was just a horrible accident. My prayers are with the family.

    My condolences to the Sweat and Coleman families. Truly very tragic and heartbreaking indeed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you my friends.

    Patriot- Why don't you think before chastising someone you don't know, over a situation you know little about. I know these people, they have used these machines many times and had never had problems. The truth is, it was an accident. Sure, maybe it could have been avoided. But any accident could. I've been in several accidents, and every one of them could have been avoided. I've ridden motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATV's, boats, even autos with MEN (21-70) who shouldn't be allowed to drive them. My nephew was killed in an auto accident. It could have been avoided if he didn't drive a car. See what I'm getting at? Maybe offer some sympathy to the family and take comfort that it wasn't you or yours that had their world ripped apart last night. Just sayin'

    You people are sick. I don't know the little brothers name but the older brother was my friend and his name was Coleman Sweat. Heber's a small city, and you're aloud to snowmobile at fourteen! There not horrible parents. -_-

    @patriot. I many states 14 year olds are allowed to drive a car on public highways. On farms 14 year olds drive tractors and front end loaders. Miss judging the over hang of a cornice could have happened to any age rider. I'm sure the parents are the best jude of what there children are capable of. People here should lay off all the judgmentalism.

    14 years old and allowed to drive a snow mobile? It is a miracle these two weren't killed. Why don't parents think before allowing a 14 year old to take a snow mobile especially in an area where there are cornices?

    No names listed. Does anyone know who these children are?
